Dona Liston has been in the event industry for over 35 years, with over 1000 events under her belt. She started her business as Parties by Dona, organizing and entertaining at children's parties. Dona then added a retail party store into the mix. If that were not enough, her customers began asking her to plan their weddings and a wedding consultant business was born. She surrounded herself with the best of the best and was able to sell the business in 2010 and move to San Antonio, Texas, where she is now the proud owner of Lambermont Events, a mansion built in 1894. Dona and her husband Pat spent 3 years restoring Lambermont to the grand state that it once was.
